SPRING GULLY. Spring Gully rises near Horseshoe Lake in northeast Harris County (at 30°04' N, 95°31' W), where coastal prairie is interspersed with forested areas of pine and varieties of oak. It flows southeast for three miles to its mouth on Cypress Creek (at 30°01' N, 95°30' W). The gully cuts through an area of flat to rolling terrain with local escarpments and dissections. Soils in the area are generally shallow to deep sandy and clayey loams.
